Here’s another wonderful Apie speaker. Since my family goes through speakers, I am happy to see more from them. I really like the other one I just reviewed. Their quality is pretty darn good. Aesthetically, it’s quite sporty too. The added built in handle attachment, makes it perfect to grab and go. The handle is actually integral to the unit. The controls are on it. Bluetooth speakers are great, because they can go anywhere with you, as long as you remember to charge it up. My older son also uses one all of the time in his van. He is a commercial electrician, and has a new van. It has a stock radio, with no ports. He doesn’t even have a 12V outlet. So, he listens to audio books a lot on a Bluetooth speaker. It needs to be small, but loud. This one fits the bill. It only measures at approx.. 9 1/2 inches long by 2 ¾” deep and 5 ½” tall. So, it is highly portable. It is also a 10W speaker, so it can get pretty loud. It has 2 5W drivers. It also has what they call, 3D sound technology in it. This speaker has Bluetooth v3.0 plus EDR technology in it, so if you have an older phone, it should work with it also. This is a very user friendly speaker as well. It has separate buttons for pretty much everything, as well as so many functions. On the back of this speaker you will find your aux port, USB in port, micro USB in port, on/off switch, and micro SD card slot. On the top of the handle you will find a pause/phone button, mode button, fast forward and rewind buttons, as well as volume up and volume down buttons. With the mode button you can choose between Bluetooth, micro SD, FM radio, and Aux in. There are blue LED letters that shows you your selection, as well as the radio stations as you scroll through them. Under the handle there are also blue LEDs, that illuminate the space between the handle and the speaker; so cool. This speaker talks to you in regards to saying where you are: Bluetooth, Bluetooth Disconnected, Radio, and the like. It does not state the telephone call coming in, it rings. It does have a mic, so you can accept calls through the speaker as well. The music quality on this speaker is great. It is loud and clear. It doesn’t matter what I play, be it Italian music to rap, to country, I enjoyed it all. The bass and instrumental are clear, and pretty steady. You can get the typical 10 meters away from the speaker, but it needs to be in room. If you go around corners, or behind walls, the signal will drop. The internal battery is large since it can go for about 10 hours. I could not find the stated battery size anywhere though. The louder you play the music, the less battery time. Also, the louder the music, the clarity is down a little, especially in areas where’s there’s a lot of drumming and cymbals. I find that very normal with Bluetooth speakers, and this is better than a lot of them. It pairs and plays immediately. It comes up as DY25L to pair, and no code is needed. It’s a great overall speaker, especially at its size, and it’s being 10W.
I was afforded the opportunity to review Apie’s Classic Sound Cannon Portable Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speaker, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. You will get 1 aux cable, 1 micro USB cable, and 1 speaker in your package.
